The new Community Care-a-Van!

Who We Serve

The Community Care-a-Van service was established in 2000 to help those who are unable to get transportation to their important medical services. We pick the patient up, take them to their appointment, and then transport them back home. This service is free to the patient, and is entirely supported by donations. We happily serve patients in East Toledo, Walbridge, Lake Township, Jerusalem Township, Northwood, and Oregon. Last year, the Community Care-a-Van provided 2,038 round trips to local patients in need.

Schedule a Ride

If you need to use the Care-a-Van service, you can schedule a ride by calling: 419-696-7404 after you have scheduled your appointment. Our service hours are 8 AM to 5 PM Monday to Friday. When scheduling a ride, please have the following information ready: your name, your phone number, and the time and date of your appointment. A driver will then follow-up with you.

New Van!

We’ve been patiently waiting for our new van to arrive, and on August 28, we finally received it!
